recently I decided to dual boot Windows 11 and Debian on my Asus Flow X16 machine.
Everything worked perfectly until some applications caused my external monitor (Acer XB281HK) to black screen and freeze after I fullscreened them. Those apps include:
So I searched around online and found that G-sync on my monitor might be the cause of the issue, but to turn off G-sync you need to have access to
nvidia-settings command for which you have to install proprietary drivers.
I followed this guide to install the drivers. The guide mentioned that I have to follow instructions on this page so the drivers can work properly on my laptop and after uninstalling
xserver-xorg-video-intel (which was one of the requirements for method 1 to work) everything was working fine.
I haven’t touched G-sync settings at all but the black screens and freezes no longer happen which is good. However, now my external and internal monitor share the scaling and I cannot change the orientation of my internal monitor.
First of all, I cannot have my external and internal monitor share the scaling. I need my internal monitor to have a scale of 150% or 175% (which I currently don’t see as an option in display settings) and my external monitor at 100% scaling. Currently they are both at 200%.
Second of all, I want my internal monitor to have an orientation of Landscape flipped (because of tent mode) but I don’t see that option in my display settings aswell. Whats more is that in my control panel/center, whatever it is called (the panel in the top right of the screen with sound, WiFi, battery and that), I now see an option “Auto Rotate” which wasn’t there prior to installing the drivers. In short, that option doesn’t do anything and it doesn’t do any kind of auto rotation when I flip my laptop.
I tried to fix this by trying to start a Wayland session so I followed the instructions written in the “Wayland” part of the installation guide. Long story short, after completeing the tasks mentioned in the guide I still see no Wayland option when entering Debian.
Any kind of help will be very appreciated! :)
